They Were in That? - Daniel Bruhl

This will begin a new series featuring popular actors with roles in popular movies, before anyone knew who they were. We will be updating periodically.

Where you know him from: The Nazi war hero, Fredrick Zoller, who bugs Melanie Laurent and plays a major role in the plot of Inglourious Basterds.

Before-stardom film: The Bourne Ultimatum

The Role: It’s not too much to write home about, but it puts the film on the right track. Bruhl plays the brother of Jason Bourne’s dead girlfriend, Marie. Bruhl only has six lines, without much depth, but it gets down to the core of why Bourne is so dead set on vengence.

  1. I guess that depends on how you define stardom... ;) He's been a star in Germany ever since he played the lead in "Goodbye Lenin!" in 2003 and that film also made him rather well-known in many other European (and some non-European) countries. He's also pretty well-known in Spain for the work he's done there (as well as some of his German films). He's won the audience award at the European Film Awards twice now (he also won Best Actor for Lenin).
    Sorry for getting all know-it-all... I know what you meant. :)

    Btw, I think that pic is from "The Edukators". Good film. :)
